Techerous

My name is Bill, I am a recent graduate in Information Sciences and Technology from Penn State University and this is a place for me to post or give my 2 cents on the fascinating world of technology. I am now working for a pretty big technology related company whose name I will leave out just to avoid any possible complications, however far-fetched them happening may be. Music gets included from time to time as well.

Fandom News of the Day: Amazon Unveils a Fanfic Publishing Platform
Beginning in June, fanfiction authors will be able to self-publish their works from selected partner franchises via Kindle Worlds. Gossip Girl, The Vampire Diaries and Pretty Little Liars are already on board with the project and more are expected to be announced the official launch. However, authors aren’t exactly jumping at the chance to turn their works into cash: by using the platform, authors give all rights to the work to Amazon, who can then license your elements to other authors with no compensation to the original poster. The platform also will not publish stories containing pornography, excessive use of brand names or crossovers, so your Superwholock mpreg (male pregnancy) stories will just have to stay on Tumblr.

Why we need to blow the article up in order to save it

This reads kind of like a journalism-focused version of Tim Berners-Lee’s linked data TED talk.  The internet has definitely evolved how we are capable of telling and consuming stories.  It has gotten a little annoying rereading the background story on something you have been following from the beginning in every article about it.  This seems to fit with the technological cycle of fracturing and then centralizing, the question is what approach could centralize an article written in a fractured manner?  Have aggregation sites like TechMeme already answered this?
